Sayulita is a surf town on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, along the Rivera Nayarit. It instantly relaxes visitors with its beachy, relaxed vibe. Sayulita began as a quiet fishing village when it was discovered by surfers years ago; today, it is a designated Pueblo Magico (Magical Village), as determined by the Mexican government. It hosts a number of major events, including the annual Punta Sayulita Surf Classic.

What we love about Sayulita is that it has been able to keep its small-town, Mexican authenticity while welcoming tourists. The cobblestone streets are lined with restaurants, shops and bars, and many visitors rent golf carts to maneuver around town. (Sayulita is easily walkable, but golf carts are just more fun!) All cobblestone roads lead to the beach or up the hillside to boutique hotels and vacation rentals.

Families will love spending days on the beach enjoying snorkeling, paddle boarding and surfing. Boat tours, hiking and horseback riding are also fun adventures to enjoy on a Sayulita family vacation.

Whether you are visiting for the day or spending a week in the sand, this magical beach town is sure to leave lasting memories with you and your kids -- especially teenagers.
